Book Review: Rise Above- A 90 Day Devotional
Soul Surfer A 90 Day Devotional
Author: Bethany Hamilton with Doris Rikkers
Juvenile Nonfiction/ Christian/ Prayer
From the press release: In Rise Above, a book of devotions, teen surfing star Bethany Hamilton shares with young girls her courage and enthusiasm for God, inspiring them to face life head on and stand strong in their faith.
My View: Rise Above is inspiring and encouraging for young girls in a world that bombards them with false ideas about what it is that is important. The media tends to have young girls thinking that they need the newest fashions, the skinniest bodies, and the cutest boys to be successful in school and with friends. Author Bethany Hamilton sets it straight with her devotions and biblical principles for being successful today.
Readers will enjoy the 90 day devotional. It is easy to read using language that young girls will understand. It also gives answers to "Did You Know" questions that young girls have as well as "Chatting With God" conversation tips. This is a book that girls will refer to over and over again for inspiration, courage, and encouragement as they grow into the young women God has planned them to be.
